My History of Walt Disney World

I was 37 years old before ever getting to the wonderful world of Walt Disney World. It has always been a dream for me to see the largest theme park in Florida. I was 9 years old when my family went to California to Disney Land where I was in "awe" over the creations and technology of the rides. My favorite ride would have to be at that time was the Haunted Mansion. I had never seen anything like it before. Back then in the 70's you would never had thought there would be anything better!'

After I began my family I also wanted my children to experience WDW like there was no better place to vacation. At 37 years old I finally got to drive with my husband and children to Walt Disney World in Florida. I actually think my husband and I enjoyed it more than my children. Although they had come down with a terrible cold we suffered through it. My legs felt like they would fall off by the end of the day but nothing was going to stop me from seeing as much as I could. We only had two week to see all four parks. At this time Animal Kingdom was the newest park. We still weren't able to see all that WDW had to offer.

We stayed at the Pop Century Resort. At that time I thought "WOW" we don't even have to drive to the parks due to the special transportation that they had to provide. We took every advantage of using them! I still remember walking down main street USA and I have to say the Walt Disney Magic Kingdom is my favorite. I notice that things where much different than I could remember from when I was 9 years old at Disney Land and the parks seemed so much bigger. It was then my goal to see Mickey, Minnie and friends. My daughter at my side we began our excursion. I have to laugh because ever time we saw a character we ran to try to get in line first. Boy, that's a real chore.'

My second favorite I would have to say would be Epcot. "O My God"! what great food! The countries are just fabulous and once again I could not find enough time to see all that I wanted to see. I remember watching Illumination The Reflections Of Earth at Epcot and could not ever remember seeing something so beautiful in my life (exceptions of my children's birth). I could have stayed at that time for ever! The sky just lit up with fireworks and the world that revolves in the water is nothing I'd ever seen before.

When your at Walt Disney World you are able to forget about everything you have back home. Isn't that life! You become a child again and the feelings of laughter and smiles on everyone's face. What could be better'

After getting home from our visit in February my husband and I decided to return in May 2005 for our 15 year anniversary. We went without the children this time. We stayed at the Contemporary resort which was just fantastic as you were able to ride the monorail to the parks take the boats or even walk. We were able to walk to the Magic Kingdom in 5 minutes and also could walk to MGM and Epcot if we wanted to. We took the time to visit as many resorts as we could to try to figure out which resort would be our next return. Wow! that is a hard task to figure out. They all have such a unique style to them and so beautiful with different themes for each resort. I then told my husband that we will start researching for deals, discounts, cheap flights, codes and the history of WDW. My husband has become Mr. Disney as we call him at home. He spends most of his time on weekends and after work looking for special deals. This has become a special event for both of us and a hobby. We plan to return to WDW ever year and then some if possible. Plans are to return soon this winter.
